$14K????  How??? There is no RAWS that do the NSX plus it isn't even on the SEVS. How can you have one imported and complied for $14K??????

That's where one of the risks is at, waiting for it to be on SEVS. At the moment, it cannot be brought in until legislation changes in 2018.
Hence organising for the car to be stored in Japan until legislation comes in. The 14k doesnt include storage cost.. trying to sort it with contact currently living in Japan. It is also not a firm number, that is what it would cost now to bring in as a Racecar, the cost of fees could rise or lower with the new legislation.

If rules change, it will come in and be brought in under the changes allowing for 25 year old cars to come in.

Under current legislation, it can only be brought in as a race car and not road registered. Which is why it will need storing it over there until then.

If the legislation doesn't go through, car gets resold to Japanese market / US market. Losses then made from whatever money was put into storage costs, fees to importer, etc.

It will have to be an early one to get it in on the "new" 25 year rule................it will never be able to go on the SEVS, not under current rules anyway.

But there is going to be issues with Rego here. In Vic you still need to get VASS'ed up before Rego can even be considered. I have gone through a few 1988 model cars now and it's a major PITA, an early 90's car will be worst..........remember it's got to comply to that years ADR's.

Still don't understand the $14k though, why would you be paying import fees if it's going in storage over there???

Car is bought in as a 'parts only' vehicle and then re numbered to try get it road legal........not saying it can't be done, but you need to know people in the RMS
Everything looks better in carbon fibre
